Petite Dress Form

…not in any size even remotely close to my measurements. In fact, the only petite dress form I’ve ever seen with my measurements was this one that Petite XXS bought last year. But I didn’t want a modern sewing form…I wanted as close to a vintage style as I could get. So my search continued… Then, while surfing the web one day, I happened to stumble upon this: Female Petite Dress Form from The Classic Collection Clothing Forms. Size 0/1. The petite

Petite Gap Tees – Fit Review Friday

…Bicep: 6″ Length: front: 20″ back: 24″ Gap Vintage Relaxed Tee // Size xs petite *40% off with code WOW (thru 11/9). Ok…here we go. A nice relaxed tee with a low, but not too low crew neckline, in a soft and cozy cotton/modal blend. No sheerness here either. Ever since my American Apparel cotton blend tees pilled almost immediately, it has been a concern of mine with such blends. I popped this in the wash to test for pilling, and am happy to see…

Petite Hangers For Narrow Shouldered Wardrobes

…Walnut :: Petite Top Hanger in Natural :: Petite Suit Hanger in Natural :: Petite Top Hanger in Walnut :: Petite Suit Hanger in Walnut I contacted Only Hangers and they were very generous to send me some hangers to play with. My shirts and blazers measure between 13″ and 14″ in the shoulder, so the junior 14″ hanger was a better fit for my wardrobe. Here’s a comparison of the much better fitting 14″ hanger (I chose the walnut color) to the velvet…

Petite Haute Couture Fashion House Carven Gets a Modern Makeover

…At this point in my life, I certainly can’t afford a high-end designer wardrobe, but I would love the option to buy a few special pieces in petite proportions that would hopefully not need invasive alterations. A girl can dream… Is there a retail market for high-end designer petite sizes? Would you splurge on high-end designer items if they came in petites?

Review: J.Crew Petite Schoolboy Blazer in Wool Flannel

…y mind, and their current blazer offerings are quite boring. Here enters J.Crew. Just look at those details! I’m completely smitten with those buttons, and adore the inside ticket and lipstick pockets. Fully lined, reinforced buttons, and working sleeve buttons are other great details. There’s even a chest pocket for pocket squares (he he). The fabric is a thin and soft wool flannel, which is perfect for most seasons here in Southern California. H…

Petite XXS at Banana Republic!

…very well, which is a positive sign that BR will continue to expand their petite line. Petite Kaleidescope Top I was lucky enough to snag the above silk top in petite XXS before it sold out online, and let me just say I am very excited about this new size. As I reviewed in my earlier post about Banana Republic petite silk tops, the PXS has always fit about 1-2 sizes too large on me. Well, when this baby arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to try…

Petite Fit Guide: Improper Fit of a Juniors Top on a Petite Woman

…obes. While shopping in juniors departments can yield a lot of success for petite women, there are things to look out for and avoid. Teen styles tend to be super trendy and youthful, which is dangerous for petite women who don’t want to get lost in a group of junior high schoolers on the street. Teen styles also tend to be made cheaply, with short lives, since teenagers are fickle creatures who will get bored and throw away their clothes rather qu…

Review: The Elusive Burberry Petite

…the shoulders and back. Another view of the baggy shoulder and back. This petite coat is not very petite! In fact, I’ve found better fits with the regular size 2 Burberry coats. I thought maybe it was just because this coat is wool/cashmere, and not the traditional trench fabric. But then I stumbled across this petite Burberry coat in size 2P at Nordstrom and tried it on. I found the fit was only slightly better than the wool/cashmere coat! It wo…

Success! Some Tiny Petite Finds at Banana Republic

…blic Petite Silk Color-Block Skirt, $79.50 Here is the skirt on me in size Petite 00: Skirt: Banana Republic Petite Silk Color-Block Skirt, size Petite 00 Top: B.P. from Nordstrom, size XS Shoes: Cole Haan Grey Suede Almond Toe Pump, size 5 This skirt falls at the top of my hips, which is lower than it is intended (it looks to fall near the waist of the model), but that’s fine by me. Because I have a shorter torso, I generally don’t like tucking s…

Petite Fit Guide: Improper Fit of a Regular Size Blouse on a Petite Woman

…woman is often misguided and unresearched. I get frustrated when I see a “Petite Advice” item in magazines or websites that states, “alter down regular sizes” or, “shop in the Juniors Department”. The people writing these things are obviously not petite women, or have ever had to go shopping with one. I can stand in dressing rooms for hours, tugging and pulling at fist fulls of fabric, wondering if my tailor could nip or tuck an item into shape….
